Hi


We have Windows 2012 DC and Windows 7 workstations. we have a program called "Vitamins" installed on application server on G drive and when the users log in to the windows 7 PC , the "G" application drive gets mapped to all the windows 7 PCs.

Logging into the windows 7 PC  i have created the shortcut for this Vitamins program pointing to the G where the program short exists.

Now on every windows 7 PC on our network , we have a folder in the path C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Food

I want to create a shortcut within this  "Food"  folder for the vitamins program

Please can you post some tutorials to achieve this.

Thanks

Have you attempted to use group policy preferences for this task?

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753580.aspx

(there is also a section on that page that allows the same shortcut creation to also create its containing folder, assuming it doesnt already exist for your client's start menu - See the "Location" section about half way down)

Hi Deanomac

The Food  folder already exist on all PCs, only I want to copy the vitamin shortcut.

Do you have access to create/modify group policies for your network?
